Birthday for Mom!!!

Yes, it is my Mom's birthday today. And Yes,,she did get to go to Rehab!!! I am so thankful that the insurance finally agreed to let her go. I took her there straight from the hospital about 4:30 yesterday afternoon. She is still in quite a bit of pain, espiecally when she is sitting or standing. But I pray that once they start managing her pain and working with her at the Rehab that will take a turn for the better.
I made her this card this morning. I am just too worn out physically and emotionally to go back to work so I am resting up this week-end and will be much better for it on monday when I do return to work.
I am going to go to visit her after lunch. My Dad is there now and when he comes home I will go. She is only about 10 minutes away from us now and that is great. They all seem really nice there at the Rehab too so I think she is in good hands.
I am going to buy her a little springy plant and some cupcakes for her and the nurses and techs to share with her. I feel so relieved now and just hope that she will start making some strides in her recovery.
Words cannot express how much it has meant from all of you Dear Friends who have been sending prayers and positive thoughts our way. Believe me when I say that I firmly believe the reason she did get approved was because of yours and all of friends, family, and my co-workers, keeping us in their hearts and thoughts. You all are a true blessing to me!!!
I will keep you posted with how she is doing! Thanks again for being here for me!!!

Oh, Beth, I'm so glad it's working out. I know she's still going to be uncomfy for a long while, but at least she's in a better place and the financial issue is settled. Loved the photo and the card you posted!

I'm glad you're staying out for the rest of the week. I know caregiving can be exhausting, so take care of you, too.

Meanwhile, give Lottie my love. Tell her a birthday card is getting mailed today, so she can spread out the merriment!

Wonderful news, Beth. I've been chatting with Jane and keeping up with all the 411 through her as well. Please give your dear mom a gentle hug for me. And while we are at it, here is one for you as well. (((Beth and Lottie )))

Yes! Your mom will be feeling better before long, I'm sure of it. Nice card for her birthday. I'm sorry she is still in pain, but am hopeful this will ease and she has a great birthday!

Cupcakes? I'm on my way! Bethy, I am so glad your mom was admitted to the rehab and I'm sure it's a weight lifted off your shoulders. Of course I will continue to say my prayers for her. I know it will be a difficult journey, for both of you, but the outcome will be well worth it. I can't wait to meet you two for a spring shopping spree! Please give your mom a big (but gentle) hug for me and wish her a happy birthday (as happy as one can be in hospital, anyway). Big hugs my friend. xoxo

Happy Birthday Beth's MOM:-) I just love the cards you made for her and I'm sure everyone appreciated the cupcakes!! Such wonderful news that the insurance issues have worked out and that she is now in rehab. She certainly does have a long road of recovery ahead of her but with the love of her family and all the prayers, she will indeed recover:-) xox
